As that document states it is not just menus, it is out-of-nowhere crashes.
I've been an IntelliJ user/fan/etc for 7 years but because of this I've had to switch to Eclipse just to get work done (primarily due to the 5-6 minute complete JDK/Grail/library reindex after every cold crash)
Eclipse is Java based too so I'm not sure what the difference might be...??
Everytime I got the crash and "sent a report to apple" I looked at the info it is sending and it appears to be Java2D related.
... a very sad former (hopefully temporary) IntelliJ user.
(trying out Eclipse Galileo... not too shabby once it is configured)
